Black women often refer to their melanated skin as magic but many don't know the benefits that their melanin possesses. I learned so much researching this topic and I know you will too after watching. All Black people have an abundance of melanin. Male & female. Love the skin you're in!

*Please note Dr. Merat was referring to melanated chaga powder when he spoke of melanin repairing broken DNA. You can watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/ZhazAnN9cKs

BTW, some people are going to try to interpret this video as a way of saying Black people are better than other races lol No, that's not what this means. Everyone has melanin. Some people have more than others. Every "race" has genetic advantages that helps them adapt in certain climates.

If you don't have a cleansing brush, a cheaper option is an electronic toothbrush.
